Week in Review – February 14, 2020

By Published On: February 14, 2020Categories: Crude, Daily Market News & Insights, Diesel, Gasoline

The crude market was up for the week.  The week started on the news that the coronavirus casualties exceeded that of SARS in 2002-2003.  A steady stream of bearish news throughout the week was not enough to tamp down the enthusiasm of the market as crude steadily rose to close the week higher.  Rumors of OPEC+ cuts may have contributed to the rise, but unforeseen factors seemed to have been in play during the week as the market seemed to move counterintuitively to the news.
